Three injured in three vehicle accident – Hwy. 8


Three people were injured Friday night in a three vehicle accident on Easley Highway (SC 8) at the intersection of Hunt Road. A Jeep Cherokee apparently crossed the center line and side swiped an oncoming Toyota truck before striking another Toyota truck head-on. The two occupants in the second Toyota truck and the driver of the Jeep were taken to the hospital by Pelzer EMS. Three and Twenty firefighters had to cut the door off the Jeep to free the driver. The road was closed and traffic detoured around the wreck scene for more than an hour. (Photo by David Rogers)
